The Proxxon FD150/E is a compact metal working lathe for facing and longitudinal turning, boring, taper turning, parting and drilling.
The high maximum speed (5000rpm) allows very small diameters to be machined.
The lathe has an accurate bed made from cast aluminium and the spindle from diecast aluminium.
It is run using a powerful, quiet running DC motor which has a two stage belt drive used in conjunction with an electronic speed control to achieve the full speed range (500-5000rpm).
The main spindle runs with precision bearings and has a continuous bore of 8.5mm.
A three jaw self-centring chuck is supplied with an inside jaw range of 1.5-32mm and 12-65mm outside.
The tailstock comes with a live centre and has an MK0/short bore.
There is a quick change tool post with the machine accepting 6mm tooling.
